    Mountings:  The saya is very attractive but does show ware from being carried and the is a small crack in the koiguchi.
    The tsuka has one crack which can be repaired and is strong otherwise.
    The same is very nice and the menuki are good quality.
    The fuchi is missing but the kashira is nice shakudo.
    The habaki is silver foiled and is in very good usable condition.
    Overall Condition:  The blade is in good condition other that the chips, there are areas where rust has been cleaned off.
    There appears to be utsuri but not certain because of the old polish.  This would be a very nice blade in fresh polish.

    Late Koto ( pre 1599 ) Ubu ( original lenght ) katana.

    Lot of ancient blades have gone trough what is called “Suriage” ( sword shortening)  especially during the Edo period when a limit was imposed on swords (+/-90 cm).
    A lot of samurai could not afford to purchase another blade so they would simply opt to shorten the one they had.
    Hence, having an original lenght sword from this period is not usual.

    Signature:  Not  legible
    Year Made:  Late Koto

    Forging Pattern:  Itame mixed with masame
    Tempering Pattern:  Ko midare with gonome
    Dimensions:   Nagasa:   27 9/16″, Nakago:  7 7/8″, Mihaba:  1 1/8″, Sakihaba:  11/16″, Kasane:  7/32″, Sori:  9/16″ 
    Mountings:  In shirasaya that looks old but I believe it has been stained which is of little consequence .
    The shirasaya is solid.  The habaki is one piece made to look like a two piece gold and silver combination.
    It is starting to split along the ha and is a little banged up but is still fairly tight and servicable.
    Overall Condition:  The blade is solid and the polish is good enough to see the forging and temper. Three is a remnant of a signature that someone attempted to remove.
